My father was an avid outdoorsmen and he took my sisters and me out hiking and backpacking from an early age. I’m 73 and I still hike and still enjoy exploring scenic and wild places. I have a long history of enjoying the outdoors and want to see the scenic outdoors endure for other generations.
There are so many worthwhile charities out there and I support a number of organizations that do different types of work. I decided to focus on conservation because it appeals to my interests. I would like to see my donation go to saving wild, scenic places and preventing encroachment from things like housing and roads and mining that have devastating impacts on nature.
Why I Choose To Support The Conservation Fund
The Conservation Fund was highly recommended to me by a friend. I looked it up in the American Institute of Philanthropy (AIP) and saw the Fund got an A rating so I know that the money goes to the mission of the organization and not to marketing and overhead. I know the Fund will use my money wisely.
